As cities intensify land use with taller buildings, elevators and escalators (E&E) become an integral part of users’ journey and experience.  Recent development for new E&E solutions are focused on resource efficiency and enhancement of sustainability and operational performance of buildings.

New buildings and existing buildings slated for refurbishments could benefit from innovations in its E&E systems.  This presentation will highlight:

  • How advancements in material science contributes to energy efficiency;
  • Elevators could now be installed in a full timber shaft;
  • Predictive maintenance technology could enhance operational performance;
  • An open API platform that enables unlimited possibilities of ecosystem partnership.

This session is presented by KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry and the winner of the 2022 Business Leadership in Sustainable Innovations Award conferred by SGBC and BCA. KONE is ranked 19th in the Corporate Knights’ 2023 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations.
